1 Tunnel Effect:  particle with kinetic energy E strikes a barrier with height U 0 > E and width L  classically the particle cannot overcome the barrier  quantum mechanically the particle can penetrated the barrier and appear on the other side  then it is said to have tunneled through the barrier examples:  emission of alpha particles from radioactive nuclei by tunneling through the binding potential barrier  tunneling of electrons from one metal to another through an oxide film  tunneling in a more complex systems described by a generalized coordinate varying in some potential phys4.5 Page 1 approximate result:  the transmission coefficient T is the probability of a particle incident from the left (region I) to be tunneling through the barrier (region II) and continue to travel to the right (region III)  depends exponentially on width of barrier L and the difference between the particle kinetic energy and the barrier height (U 0 E) 1/2 and mass of the particle m 1/2 example:  An electron with kinetic energy E = 1 ev tunnels through a barrier with U 0 = 10 ev and width L = 0.5 nm. What is the transmission probability?  the probability is small, even for a light particle and a thin barrier  but it can be experimentally observed and used in devices phys4.5 Page 2
2 sketch of calculation of tunnel rate:  Schrödinger equation outside of barrier (regions I and III)  has solutions same for ψ III  incoming wave reflected wave  transmitted wave  incoming flux of particles with group velocity v I+ phys4.5 Page 3 transmission:  probability T  ratio of flux of transmitted particles to incident particles barrier region:  Schrödinger equation  solution for U > E  exponentially decaying or increasing wave (no oscillations)  does not describe a moving particle  but probability in barrier region is nonzer0 phys4.5 Page 4
3 boundary conditions:  at left edge of well (x = 0)  at right edge of well (X = L)  solve the four equations for the four coefficients and express them relative to A ( A 2 is proportional to incoming flux)  solution phys4.5 Page 5 transmission coefficient:  find A/F from set of boundary condition equations simplify:  assume barrier U to be high relative to particle energy E simplify:  assume barrier to be wide (k 2 L>1)  therefore phys4.5 Page 6
4 transmission coefficient:  T is exponentially sensitive to width of barrier  T can be measured in terms of a particle flow (e.g. an electrical current) through a tunnel barrier  makes this effect a great tool for measuring barrier thicknesses or distances for example in microscopy applications phys4.5 Page 7 Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) xenon atoms on a nickel surface 5 nm moving individual atoms around one by one D.M.

6 equation of motion:  linear restoring force is a prerequisite for harmonic motion  Hooke's law  equation of motion for harmonic oscillator  a general solution  oscillator frequency note:  in many physical systems the restoring force is not strictly linear in the oscillation coordinate for large amplitude oscillations  for small oscillation amplitudes however, the harmonic oscillator is usually a good approximation  Taylor expansion of any force about the equilibrium position phys4.5 Page 11 potential:  potential associated with Hooke's law  U is used when solving the Schrödinger equation for a harmonic oscillator expectations:  only a discrete set of energies will be allowed for the oscillator  the lowest allowed energy will not be E = o but will have some finite value E = E 0  there will be a finite probability for the particle to penetrate into the walls of the potential well Schrödinger equation for the harmonic oscillator: phys4.5 Page 12
7 Solving the harmonic oscillator Schrödinger equation: rewrite: normalize:  these are dimensionless units for the coordinate y and the energy α  the Schrödinger equation thus is given by normalization condition for the solution wave functions ψ: phys4.5 Page 13 energy quantization:  condition on α for normalization  energy levels of the harmonic oscillator  equidistant energy levels  this is a distinct feature of the harmonic oscillator  zero point energy (n = 0, lowest possible energy of the harmonic oscillator) phys4.5 Page 14

9 comparison of classical to quantum probability densities of position classical: quantum:  largest probability density at the turning points (x = ± a) of the oscillation  in the ground state (n = 0) ψ 2 is largest at theequilibrium position (x = 0)  for increasing n the quantum probability density approaches the classical one  n = 10  the probability for the quantum oscillator to be at amplitudes larger then ± a decreases for increasing n  this is an example of the correspondence principle for large n phys4.5 Page 17 Quantum Harmonic Oscillators Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (Cavity QED) two photons one photon atom (green) as a source and probe for single photons no photon mirrors (blue) to contain photon in a cavity (a photon box) standing electromagnetic wave with a single photon Review: J.
